At the same time, it isn’t practical for someone else in the household to carry the disabled person up and down stairs. Ask the mother of a baby or toddler about carrying a 30 lb. child up a staircase several times a day. Now imagine carrying the equivalent of at least four toddlers up and down the stairs. It would be a daunting challenge even for a fit, strong adult to carry a lightweight adult up the stairs. There are a number of household devices and products that help senior citizens maintain their independence for as long as possible, from simple things like glucose meters to chairs that help them rise to a standing position, to personal alarm systems worn on a belt. Stair lifts are a big expense, but they can add immeasurably to the quality of life of the person who has trouble with stairs, and to the quality of life to a caregiver or other member of the household who had been tasked with helping the disabled person navigate the stairs.
A stair lift is not only something that has a lot of significance for the concerned people, but is also a major investment. This is the reason that makes it important that a stair lift has to be just right and adequate to the needs as well as safe. If you are the one for quality, then two manufacturers are there who are famous for their best quality. One is Stannah and the other is Bruno. Stannah is a UK manufacturer while the latter is a US manufacturer of stair lifts. The manufacturers and models for the straight and curved stair-lifts differ and there are different companies that have established a great name in their respective kinds of stair lifts. For the curved stair lift, ThyssenKrupp Access and Bruno manufacture the most popular and top quality models. ThyssenKrupp Access offers the model Stair Glide and Flow II in curved stair lifts and Bruno makes the curved stair lift, which is the Electra-Ride III.
Selecting a stair-lift has now become very easy with the Internet. There are the websites of different manufacturers where not only the product types are shown, but also the features of each of the products are shown so that the costs can be compared relative to the features that each of the products has to offer. In this way, you can easily decide in favour of one of the stair lifts that offer similar features. The Electra-Ride by Bruno stair-lift is an accessibility product that is similar to ThyssenKrupp’s Stair-Glide in certain aspects. The former has all controls, automatic, and is compact and unique in design. The seat height is adjustable so that the seating is comfortable. With its compact design, it is ensured that other people would be able to easily use the stairs even when the stair lift is fixed.
The biggest danger with AC powered stair lifts is that during a power failure, the stair lift will not function. Early versions of stair lifts were all AC powered. Trailing electrical cables presented tripping hazards, and the lifts moved in a jerky, start-stop manner due to the nature of the AC powered motor. At that time there wasn’t much choice because battery technology had not advanced as far as it has today. Today, DC powered stair lifts that only recharge from the household supply of electricity are the most popular lift chair designs. With DC powered stair lifts, if the power goes out, the battery can’t charge, but the lift will still be functional until the battery’s charge runs out. These models are quieter than AC models, too.
Stair lifts are chairs that run on tracks attached to stair treads that lift a person up or down the stairs safely. They are an enormous help to someone living alone who has trouble navigating stairs, and for those who live with a spouse, relative or other loved one who is not capable of the hard physical work of carrying the person up and down the stairs. A stair lift usually benefits more people than just the person who uses it. There are a number of reasons why people have trouble going up and down staircases: arthritis, diabetic foot complications, neurological conditions, or a decline in strength due to aging. Giving up the independence of going up and down stairs can be a terrible blow to a person’s morale and self esteem. Suddenly half the house is out of reach, and that person’s world shrinks considerably.
